I am just wondering if any of you married brides abstained for some time before the wedding? If so, how long did you abstain for and did it make the wedding night sex great or awful? I am not referring to those that abstained for religious reasons.
FI and I have been together for a long time, so I wonder if abstaining would make the sex more exciting. Or would it be exciting anyway? I know our engagement sex was. 🙂

We did abstain for the 2 days before the wedding. And it started out as a joke, but we ended up also abstaining from kissing during that time too and it made our first kiss really awesome. The sex was great for our first married sex but I don’t think it was better because we abstained, it was awesome because we were married!

Not on purpose but we were really jetlagged and busy so we definitely did it less leading up to the wedding by accident. T_T

@Bainise2013: We were long distance before the wedding (and still are ) so we didn’t see each other from June 9th through June 30th (three weeks) and then abstained for the final week as well. So we went four weeks without sex and I wouldn’t say it was more amazing because we had waited, but it definitely didn’t take away from it. We were also exhausted by the time we got to the hotel.

We aren’t planning on it. We already live together so I don’t see the point.

We didn’t abstain. In fact, being able to physically express our love and feel that closeness in the days leading up to the wedding, amidst the madness, made us both feel calmer and more excited about getting married. I can theoretically understand why people do it, but it wasn’t for us.
As for the wedding night – we were so tired and sweaty and worn out when we finally got home from the after party. We took a shower together, had very routine un-exciting sex just to do it, and went to bed. We had our whole honeymoon, and the rest of our lives to have great sex. We didn’t feel any pressure at all to have great sex on our wedding night, which is great because we were so exhausted that it wouldn’t have been fun at all.

@anna.mariebrickhousetobe: oh heck no. if we had to move the wedding date, I’d just start having sex again, and the abstain later lol.

@Bainise2013: We did! For 6 weeks before the wedding. It was SO worth it!

@Bainise2013: our wedding is in 2 weeks and we decided to start abstaining today. We usually have sex every day to every other day, so I give it til Wednesday before FI will start pleading that he changed his mind lol.

We didn’t, we were LDR up until 3 weeks before the wedding, so we didn’t have a lot of time for that most of our relationship, and we didn’t want to hold off once we physically could any day we wanted!

I want to.
We already live together and obviously have sex, so it’s not as if the wedding night will be our ‘first’ but I think it makes it special to have stopped a few weeks before the wedding. It gives a form of anticipation for the wedding night- rather then it just being another night of sex – not that our sex isn’t special, I just want it to be a little different for our ‘first time’ as a married couple.
I think that makes sense…

We abstained for 3 months prior to the wedding. Our wedding night was very nice. 🙂
